Destinos is a video series teaching introductory Spanish through fifty-two video programs (each about 30 minutes long). Courses are offered through the lens of a Spanish telenovela (soap opera) and teach speaking, listening, and comprehension skills. In addition, the series provides content in various Spanish dialects, including Mexico, Spain, Argentina, and Puerto Rico. In addition to the video, each program includes information on the vocabulary featured and a link to a practice area with matching activities, fill-in-the-blank questions, and more.

tag(s): hispanic (25), spanish (103)

In the Classroom

Share the videos and supplemental activities with students to view as an engaging way to learn basic Spanish. The introductory videos are in English and incorporate basic Spanish terms throughout the story, making the content easy to follow and not as overwhelming as materials in Spanish only. The first episode provides an overview of watching and learning from the series; consider watching this together as a class before assigning additional episodes so that students understand how to watch and learn from the videos. As students learn new vocabulary, ask them to create simple webpages with Carrd, reviewed here, that share images and simple stories in Spanish. As students' proficiency increases, have groups of students write and record a short telenovela. Use Adobe Express Video Maker, reviewed here, as an easy-to-use tool for recording, editing, and sharing videos.

Readlee uses speech AI (artificial intelligence) technology to gather and analyze student reading progress. Upload your class roster using Google Classroom or Clever, or upload students individually. Begin by posting a text for students to read online within the Readlee platform. Next, import text by URL, select from Readlee's library, or upload a document; options include posting the full text or a defined portion of the text. Finally, assign the reading to the entire class or specific students. When students complete the assignment, they turn on the microphone, begin reading, and select the button to turn in their recording when finished. Readlee provides data on each project, including the number of words read per minute and more. Be sure to check the pricing page to view all of the features included with free accounts.

tag(s): ELL/ESL (27), fluency (22), independent reading (105), reading comprehension (125), reading strategies (72), Teacher Utilities (127)

In the Classroom

Although Readlee doesn't replace the need to listen to students' reading in person, it provides an excellent tool for gathering data and providing information between those data points. In addition, Readlee provides students with ongoing feedback on their development of reading and fluency skills. Use Readlee as a resource for ENL/ESL students to practice and develop reading and speaking skills. Share feedback from students' reading assignments with parents as you monitor progress together throughout the year. During student/teacher conferences, use the data from Readlee to work with students to develop a plan for strengthening and improving reading skills.

The FSI Language Courses provide training in many languages using public domain courses from The Foreign Services Institute. FSI provides United States government training for the foreign affairs community. Choose from commonly learned languages, such as Spanish or French, or select less-known languages, including Amharic and Yoruba.

If you have students in world language, world cultures, or even language arts classes who need enrichment - send them to this site to learn the basics of a new language or to look for roots that show in English. Self-motivated advanced students or those planning a semester abroad can learn language basics on their own here. Finally, include this site for "Children of the World Day" or family heritage day activities. As students practice and learn a new language, share an online recording tool such as Vocaroo, reviewed here, for students to record and playback conversations.

Google Read Along is an entertaining, interactive website designed to help young children learn to read. This site is currently available in English, Portuguese, Spanish, Hindi, Marathi, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Gujarati, and Urdu. Read Along engages young readers with a friendly character named Diya, who provides assistance and feedback when needed. Students receive immediate feedback by earning stars for each word they read correctly. In addition, Diya will help if children are stuck on a particular word. Gamification makes learning to read fun and engaging! Students earn stars and badges and can level up to more advanced books as they become increasingly better readers. Google Read Along also tracks how many minutes students spend actively reading. A Google account is required, and enable your microphone access for your browser. Additionally, students may use an Education Fundamentals (formerly G Suite for Education) account.

Google Read Along would be a great addition to any preschool or early elementary classroom. Teachers who work with ENL students or adults learning to read may also find this site helpful. Students will gain confidence by practicing reading independently yet still get assistance if needed, all while the teacher can work with individual students or small groups. In addition, many books are cross-curricular, so they can be used to enhance instruction for other core subjects.

Take your choice boards to the next level! Regular choice boards allow your students to complete equally active, interesting, and engaging assignments that demonstrate their comprehension of the presented material--but not all students learn at the same pace or have the same background knowledge coming into a lesson. In this session, you'll learn to differentiate your choice boards by process, product, or content to support students as necessary. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Learn the basics of Tomlinson's differentiation model; 2. Learn to differentiate choice boards for both instructional and assessment purposes; and 3. Use a template to create a differentiated choice board. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
